I’m having a great 2013 so far! I performed a feminist-y poetry set at an open mic night on Tuesday and got a great reception! My two favorite moments were the woman who came over and thanked Jordan for being so cool (for not being a slave to the patriarchy, I assume) and the girl who told me I was her new best friend, then proceeded to do a stand-up comedy routine about feminism. (She was really, really good!) Anyway, the whole thing was wonderful and I loved it! Tomorrow night, I think J and I are headed to a different coffeehouse to do it up again!
Fun fact of the day: “D to the P” is a phrase that was introduced to me last night by a Bryn Mawr College graduate (the same one who is now my newest best friend). It stands for “death to the patriarchy” and I love it. Here is her explanation of the saying, in a blog post entitled “D to the P (but I still love you, Dad).”
